So this lady I know was having a conversation with me and she lamented that "we" were soon going to be in the minority. I was a little shocked that she was telling me this and I asked her, "who's 'we?'" She pinched her skin, "you know, white people."
...I'm not white.
Sometimes I just have to wonder what it is about me that makes people think I am white. She isn't the only one. My friend Sara once said that she thinks of me as being white. My dad has flat out told me I was white. I suppose the answer came from one of my sister's professors who would probably label me an acculturated white. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that before and how offended I was.
